behind, still convinced this is not a factor. >> john: tina, does president obama need to do more to raise awareness? >> it depends on what your cause is. he always needs to do more until he actually accomplishes it. >> john: fair enough. >> the greatest advocate for climate change is not al gore. it's sandy. i think as we see it happening in front of us, it's going to be self-evident. go ahead. >> john: if you would please. i agree with you on sandy and mayor bloomberg has been a real leader ever since. with the republican house, what can the president do to try to fight climate change? >> well, i think that he needs to take on -- there is a huge industry that is -- actively campaigning against climate change and actively sowing the seeds of skepticism when it comes to climate denial. they're very effective at that. those are people who pad their pockets with oil money. every time that we have winter, that somehow shows we're not having global warming right? because look, it snowed. and not knowing that the weather is not actually what climate is and being able to educate people

. maybe president obama needs some binders full of women and by the way, that leaves kathleen sebelius in the cabinet. and they've said kathleen sebelius is staying but nobody's said anything about janet napolitano in the cabinet. is she staying or isn't she staying? so the president's opened himself up to some criticism here. charlie rangel jumped on it yesterday. he was asked on msnbc, how does this look? does very a diversity problem? >> it's embarrassing as hell. we've been through all of this with mitt romney and we were very hard on mitt romney with his women binders. i kind of think there's no excuse when it is the second term. the first term, you can say people got to know who is around that's qualified in order to get this job. >> bill: so i ask the question to you does the president have a little problem here with diversity? 1-866-55-press. by the way compounding the problem, the president's now looking for looking for looking for a new chief of staff. everybody reports there are two candidates to be chief of staff. dennis mcdonna who is the deputy national security adviser.

morning. >> maria, let's start with you, president obama needs a big tent to effectively pass his agenda, evangelicals typically support conservatives. with giglio bowing out does it alienate this group and create an unnecessary headache for president obama? >> i think the presidential inaugural committee could have done a better job of vetting and therefore wouldn't be in the position but i commend reverend giglio for bowing out. i think it was the right thing to do for the president's inauguration. the president's inauguration should reflect the tenor and the focus on diversity and inclusion which has been a huge priority for this president especially this year when he came out historically in favor of the same rights for gays and lesbians to marry as everybody else so i think the reverend made the right decision. i don't think the white house will shut him out. he was at the white house last year at a prayer breakfast. there are other situations and forums where the terrific work the reverend has done for example in trying to prevent human trafficking around the world, which is an ama

when president obama announced his nomination of treasury secretary or to treasury secretary of jack lew, senator sanders said we don't need a treasury secretary that things wall street deregulation was not responsible for the the financial crisis. >> >> well, we can agree that he lacks expertise in the area, but he was supposed to have expertise. this was supposed to be his area of expertise, both in his role as omb head under clinton, and then of course as being in the industry and actually implementing the fruits of this deregulation. he has the history in one sense correct. he says the problem arose before deregulation. that is true that derivatives were already a problem before deregulation. so it was proposed to deal with the problem by having a regulation to do with credit default swaps. the clinton administration in league with greenspan, in league with phil gramm and with one of the important architects of all of this being jack lew, squashes berkeley born to destroy the proposed regulation and pass something, talk about a dishonest phrase, that not only said you cannot go f

, yesterday, that president obama could use executive order to get some of these things done. does he need that to have universal background checks or to do something else that vice president biden said today they wanted to do, which was to ban those high-capacity magazines? >> reporter: that's what's fascinating. very much an about-face, erin. these two proposals that the vice president mentioned today could not be done through executive order, they have to be done through congress. somewhat of a different message coming out of the vice president today. these specific proposals would need to go through congress. >> thanks very much to john avalon. >>> former white house deputy press secretary bill burton and co-fonder of priorities usa, a pro-obama super pac, joins me along with tim carney. bill, the vice president came out yesterday and said, we're going to use executive order if we need to. that really riled a lot of people up. executive order, you guys aren't going to get it done, we're going to do it. we just heard john avalon say, look, those ideas are plaur, a lot of republicans agr

? as we head into a second administration with president obama, our country is at a crossroads. we need i think our leaders to hold people accountable and to stick up for working families. the poor and the elderly. they have given enough. we can get more revenue. we just have to have the guts to do it. we don't need our leaders to stand in front of big donors and not have the guts to make the decisions of what's right for america. the folks that have to pay more are the bush era tax cuts. those recipients in my opinion. we can get more out of them. and of course it's all about the loopholes, isn't it? well, how are we going to change tax policy? washington if we can't get anything passed in the senate? the entire lynchpin to the 113th is going to be what is harry reid does with changing the rules for the filibuster. then we can move to get to these tax loopholes that has helped the wealthiest americans in this country. it's all about ideology. what do you believe in? do you believe the lower 80% of americans should actually serve up a little bit more to make this thing right? because we n

to the values that americans hold. we need to persuade president obama that is not enough for him not to be revisiting his promise and trying to fulfill it. it has proved to be politically difficult. it is his second term. the wisdom in the united states is that you don't let anybody have less than -- more than two terms. he runs all kinds of problems in the u.k. would you let members of parliament have more than two terms. president obama has an eye on his legacy now. he has an eye on his momentum and knows that what happens in the second term will decide how he is viewed by history. all these people and important positions on what the history books to record that they were good people. and rumsfeld, and ru said terrible things happened and they took a robust approach. with the help of people like kathryn bigelow, it is easy to rewrite the rules aren't torture as they got john hughes to do. president obama knows that he will be judged on what happens over the next four years and i really don't think fundamentally that he wants to be known as the man who promised to close guantana

obama and that you could win. and i think people needed to know more about who mitt romney was. what motivated him. you know, how he would relate to them and how they correlate to him. and they, they made the decision partially because they had a very brutal primary season and they devoted a lot of resources to taking their opponents out. but they made a decision that they didn't have the reurceto do that. >> rose: what about the vice presidential choice that they made. >> well, i think that that was not a broadening choice. that to me, when i heard that paul ryan was chosen, i felt that that was a choice that would help them get through their convention because it would be well-received by the base of the party. but it also, it also diverted the discussion from growing the economy and jobs which was their message to a lengthy discussion about medicare and how w should approach that. and you know, ryan had some fairly sharp ideaological positions. and he was identified with a very unpopular republican congressman, tomorrow parielo the former congressman from virginia got off one of t

the week off. nevertheless, it's been a very busy one here in washington. president obama made two major cabinet announcements in chuck hagel and just yesterday jack lew and while not a cabinet position, the president nominated john brennan to head the cia. all three posts need to be confirmed when the senate gets back to work. and speaking of approval, the president will kick off his second term seven points more popular than the first-term average flying in the face of history, though it's still early. five of the seven u.s. presidents re-elected since world war ii have been less popular in the second terms. so can the president use early momentum to push the policy agenda? let's spin. guys, i have been saying for a while now i think that his second term he's going the see a lot more pushback from the friends on the left than his foes on the right. for one, he's been re-elected. i think the gop has generally resigned themselves to the fact that they're going to be four more years to obama and they have a little less incentive to hang him for every misstep he has but democrats are incen

, what is his view on bank reregulation that has caused so much problems. yesterday, president obama was very clear on deregulation. watch. >> 21 times just this year, john mccain has said we need to deregulate the financial industry right at a time when we know that it's because of deregulation that wall street was able to engage in the kind of irresponsible actions that have caused this financial crisis. >> cenk: very clear but when jack lew was asked during his original confirmation for manager and budget, here's what he said about deregulation. >> my sense is as someone who has generally been familiar with these trends is that the problems in the financial industry preceded deregulation, but don't believe that deregulation was the proximate cause. >> cenk: that is preposterous. only a million% wrong. how could anybody think that deregulation didn't have to do with the destruction of the banks back in 2008? well if you got paid a million dollars a year to think that, you might think the same thing. i'm not the only one bothered by it. william black was a senior regulator when they
